Madrid council may have shredded census records and ancient King's will
29 May 2015 @ 19:48

MADRID city council has been accused of 'mass destruction' of in-house paperwork which may even include the municipal population census, or padrón, and the last will and testament of King Carlos III.

One of Spain's major unions, the labourers' commission (CCOO) says the decision to shred papers is taken, by law, by the incoming city council after each election, and has slammed the existing mayoress, Ana Botella, for pre-empting this.

“The CCOO has never heard of such a reckless and radical document destruction incident,” complains the union, which considers the city hall's response that it was 'only trying to clear some space' to be 'a poor excuse'.

“Wouldn't it be more logical to wait for the new local government to decide what is surplus to requirements, what is needed, and how much space is necessary?” the CCOO wonders.
